PrismLauncher does not allow you to create an offline account without having a Mojang / Microsoft account. If you click the "Add Offline" button, you will be presented with this error.
Error - You must add a Microsoft or Mojang account that owns Minecraft before adding an offline account. If you lost your account, contact Microsoft for support.

It can be easily bypassed.
